The town of Surat, situated on the banks of the Balonne River, is the centre of the picturesque Warroo Shire, an ideal place to enjoy a little country relaxation. Its position on the Great Inland Way between Roma and St George makes it an ideal stop for visitors heading north from New South Wales.
Founded in 1849 after Sir Thomas Mitchell passed through the area, Surat is also the site of the very last Cobb and Co. coach run. The Cobb & Co. Changing Station Complex in Surat incorporates the Cobb & Co. Store Museum, the Balonne River Gallery, the Balonne Freshwater Aquarium, the Warroo Shire Library and the Information Centre. In days gone by, the building served as a change over station for travellers and their horses to refresh during long journeys.
On display in the Cobb & Co. Store Museum are progressively changing displays depicting the lifestyles of yesteryear, giving you an insight into the area's social history. Also on display is a 14 seater working Cobb & Co. Coach.
